Air Jordan Spiz'ike
The Air Jordan Spiz'ike is the ultimate mash up. Jordan Brand fused the Air Jordan III, Air Jordan IV, Air Jordan V and the Air Jordan VI models to create one unique design. The Spiz'ike pays tribute to Jordan's beloved commercial sidekick Mars Blackmon, played by Spike Lee. Jordan and Mars starred in many commercials that not only set the foundation for the Jordan Brand, but accelerated its popularity around the world with the phrase, "Is it the shoes?"
Amidst all of the Jordan models that look to reincorporate elements from the most famed Jordan sneakers, the Air Jordan Spiz'ike has managed to stay interesting. This particular Air Jordan Spiz'ike owns a few different details from the previous pairs we have seen. This retro basketball shoe possesses a predominately black suede base similar to the Air Jordan 6 Retro Black/Red. Another interesting design can be seen on the inner lining which possesses the infamous line, "High-flying, death-defying 360 slam dunk" from the famed Mars Blackmon commercials that features Spike Lee as the character that made his debut in She's Gotta Have it. The usual side netting that came from the Air Jordan 5 was replaced with the mesh from the Air Jordan 4. Also, the "Spike" print that hit the toe cap and back of the sneaker has been replaced with a more familiar elephant print. To finish off the cosmetic transformation, Jordan Brand speckled part of the midsole and the "wings", slight blue accents as well to compliment the tongue. Overall, this clean model pays homage to the most famed of Air Jordan's without overdoing it. Continue Reading...
